Tomatin 12 year old, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Tomatin distillery rests in the small town of the same name just south of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. Famed as the woods surrounding the distillery are said to be haunted by a ghost dog, or Cu Bocin in Gaelic.
Nose: Buttery at first, but notes of raisin and almond soon take over.
Palate: Oak-y vanilla and fresh mint, dotted with stem ginger and dried orange peel.
Finish: Currant buns, a hint of raspberry jam, barley.
